Garg sir , This image is very representative of R. parviflora var. muralis . I have seen and recorded similar specimen in Matheran and Lonavala , but not in Surat . ( Occasional spikes are seen here with smaller sterile bracts , but in others they are bigger to much bigger sometimes . ) But there are some more creases to be ironed out . In IBIS , there is this photograph of original page of Flora of British India uploaded ... and it was quite thrilling to me to see that page ! Keeping the descriptions on that page in mind we have 4 taxa . . . Rungia parviflora with usually terminal spikes , sterile bracts non-pointed and fertile bracts non-hairy , supposed to be rare ,, R. p. var. pectinata (=R. pectinata ) with multiple axillary spikes , sterile bracts longer and with pointed tips , fertile bracts hairy ,, R. p. var. muralis with 'densely packed' spikes , sterile bracts pointed but not longer than fertiles --there is no mention of spikes axillary or terminal or both -- we presume both ,, and R. p. var. origanoides with linear leaves , narrower spikes and orbicular hairy sterile bracts , again not mentioned but we presume spikes are both axillary and terminal . Now coming to nomenclature , Paper by J R I Wood ... Rungia transferred/merged to Justicia with some new names coined , and is followed by COL ... COL 2019 doesn't show all Rungia transferred to Justicia . For the taxa we are concerned , it has to show . . .
